My mother turned 90 just recently. After much thought on what to get her the obvious struck me - paint a painting for her. And so too was the subject matter = the things she loves most - us kids. Weell we are not kids so much as very mature adults now :) My sister and me that is.
Anyway, it was a struggle to make that painting and frankly I am not sure it is right even now.
